As far as I know, ATI has not and does not release All In Wonder versions of its video cards for mac...I'm curious though, which faetures do you need in the all in wonder card on your PC that you can't do with a mac using one of ATI's currently released cards?

They've got a USB capture device, as does El Gato with their EyeTV. Formac has a similar FW device. But I've heard they aren't that great, and expensive for what they do.

Here's what I want - Televio (http://www.drbott.com/prod/db.lasso?code=6202-TLVO). It's a PCI card. The German company that makes it just released a new driver and software that's supposed to work pretty well. Do a search for reviews, all pretty postive. XLR8YourMac (http://www.xlr8yourmac.com) just posted something about it as well.

There are other PCI solutions, most of them not so good. And they seem to have OS X drivers only with hacked software. ATI and Formac included.

There was a rumor that ATI would be releasing an AIW card, but I guess not.

They haven't had anything like that since the XClaim VR 128, which was the AIW 128 with an external tv tuner.

I doubt that they're interested in doing it again. Formac has the Studio TVR for watching and recording tv and converting analog to digital over FireWire.

The Remote Wonder was announced recently for compatbility with Mac OS X.

ATI announced last year when the 9700 AIW came out that they had no future plans to ever produce a future AIW card for the Mac. I think this is because there are so many good alternatives since every Mac has firewire.

If you have a spare PCI slot, then buy the Televio (http://www.drbott.com/prod/db.lasso?code=6202-TLVO). You'll be happy with it.
